Être et avoir

Nicolas Philibert Francia, 2002

Vlad's rating of the film Ser y tener

There is a remarkable shot at the beginning, of large and old trees swaying in the winter wind, moving as if alive and playing. A strong sense of community, children helping one another, arguing, getting distracted, learning. Julien helping his family take care of household, later the family huddled around him helping out with the math homework. The teacher conscious of the transient relationship with his students.
